aloha, alexander!

since the gecko implementation is based on the syntax of the ARIA 
documents, and the ARIA documents use a terminal "e":

http://www.w3.org/TR/aria-state/#activedescendent

activedesencdent with a terminal e is correct -- marco and/or aaron -- 
is anyone tasked with taking the gecko implementation and checking it 
for consistency with the syntax used in the ARIA specifications?  (for 
example, labeledby versus labelledby -- a common error)

when in doubt implementing use the syntax in the specification -- that's
what it's there for -- to define the standard to be implemented
